Question: How do you recommend I manage
my buy in?
Answer: When buying in, split your Buy-In in two. Most tables have
two slots or racks in front of each player. Put ½ of your Buy-In in the
front rack and ½ in the back rack. Play only off the front rack, placing
your wins in the back rack. If you lose the chips in your front rack,
color up and leave the table.
Never lose more than ½ your Buy-In in any session!
When you win 50% of your Buy-In, lock up ½ your winnings and continue to
play the balance.
Win $ 60.00
Lock up your $200.00 buy-in and $30.00 of your win.
Continue to play with the other $30.00. As you win, lock up all profits
and leave the game a winner.
Say your Win is $20.00 on a $200.00 Buy-In. That is a 10% profit and those
10% profits can add up over the course of several sessions.
I try to shoot for a 20-25% win over my Buy-In for each of my sessions.
